Erica writes songs that are full of sharply detailed portraits of the American
landscape and the lives lived there. Her music ranges in style from
contemporary folk to country and bluegrass. Her voice is rich and warm,
often conversational in style; her performances are engaging, inspiring
and filled with hilarious stage patter and story. Her songs evoke a
sense of place in the listener, so sit back and enjoy being whisked
away by memories of places deeply rooted in your past.
